Fancy entering Mama Sonic’s bunker for a couple of minutes? Don’t worry! The Swedish indie-pop band aren’t going to murder anyone or randomly pull out a ten-inch dildo. No, they’ve set up their instruments, pressed play on the recording equipment, and whipped out their cameras and boom poles to video a porno. I jest. We’re here to watch the performance of Helen Of Troy.
Taken off their self-titled debut album released in 2019, Helen Of Troy is a cacophony of dreamy sounds and airy tones. You’ll be left mesmerised by the self-proclaimed poet of the band, Johnny Brott; his voice will slap a kiss on your cheek, while the other instruments act as butterflies in the listener’s stomach. Nice.
Helen Of Troy is a beautifully romantic song. I could imagine John Lennon frolicking in a bush with Yoko Ono as the sweet sounds of Mama Sonic act as a backdrop. That’s such a lovely thought, and that’s what this music does; it makes you feel happy when sad, overjoyed when depressed, and gleeful when troubled. Right, where is that sex toy? I know it’s around here somewhere.
